Korda Limited Edition Reuben Heaton Gigantica Scales
Any collaboration between Korda, one of the biggest carp tackle manufacturers in the country, and Reuben Heaton, weighing scales experts, was always going to produce an outstanding bit of kit. These Limited Edition Gigantica Scales are just that and are about as far removed from your standard weighing tools as possible!
The first thing you’ll notice about these scales is their stunning appearance. Long gone is the tired ‘all-black’ colouring – these scales have a fantastic carpy green shell for the really tarty carpers out there! This ensures that these scales will perfectly complement your full range of carp fishing luggage and they look great no matter what you’ve got hanging from them. The next thing that will catch your eye will be the high-visibility green tip on the pointer. This makes these scales perfect for weighing your night time catches or for when you’re operating in low light level conditions. So, if you get a midnight scream from your bite alarm, you never have to worry that you won’t be able to accurately read your scales.
Although these scales have been designed with carp fishing in mind, these would be the perfect tools for all manner of big fish angling. The Korda Limited Edition Reuben Heaton Gigantic Scales weigh in four ounce divisions. This ensures that you can ensure incredible accuracy with each capture. These scales are also comfortable to weigh fish up to a whopping 120lb (or around 54kg). This makes them ideal for continental carping, as well as a range of catfishing, and you never need to worry that your scales will swing right around past zero – unless you catch a real chunk, that is! The dial is incredibly easy to read and operates on a single revolution, again ensuring you can obtain accurate readings every time. Anglers say that ‘the scales never lie’ and with these scales you can be completely confident in this.
Manufactured with a polycarbonate body and lens, these scales are exceptionally durable, hardwearing, and have a high-specification corrosion resistance. This ensures that they will last you through many years on the bank and these are a set of scales which you can really rely on to do the job on the bank. Since these are traditional rotational scales, you never need to worry about dead batteries spoiling your session. The stainless steel hook and hang point is able to be used with any weighing sling setup, too, ensuring that you can practise proper fish care on the bank.
